Intro: A 440ml can, with no canned on or best before date. Poured into a winebar glass.
Appearance: A hazy orange colour, with a just over one finger white head that had good retention, and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: A little muted, but there’s orange, citrus zest, melon, grass, pine, and maybe a touch herbal.
Taste: Light sweetness and a nice light bitterness on the finish. Orange, citrus rind, mango, with notes of pine.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: It got better the more I drank it, but this could have been because I was a bit disappointed with the aroma at the beginning. There was a good sweet and bitter balance with strong citrus notes.

Appearance: A hazy murky dark orange brown colour with a two finger white head that had decent retention while leaving lots of nice lacing.

Taste: Light bitterness, citrus rind and pith, orange, with light tropical pineapple, grass and melon notes.
Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: It’s appearance wasn’t all that appealing, and while the aroma was a bit weak, it was good, but the taste didn’t quite come together for me.

Intro: A 440ml can, canned on 10th January 2022, with a best before date of 9th July 2022. Poured into a winebar glass.
Appearance: A hazy deep orange colour with a one finger white head that had decent retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Citrus forward, grapefruit, lime, orange pith, citrus rind, with notes of yellow stone fruit.
Taste: Grapefruit rind, orange pith, melon, grassy, light tropical peachy notes, with a lasting bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to light carbonation.
Overall: It’s not as juicy forward as I would have expected, but I’m happy that it’s not overly sweet like many TIPA’s. It’s may also be a touch boozy, but not overly so, or any more than the average TIPA. I think in the end, there’s nothing wrong with the flavour profile, it’s just not one of my favourites.
